give us the definitive answers. i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have and i always will. i do think that some of the statements he made about me have been unfounded. but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. >> as you well know, senator mccain has led the charge against rice. she may get the chance to talk to him face to face if president obama does, indeed, nominate her to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. she'll see mccain at her senate confirmation hearings. so, can we now move on to what supposedly really matters? why four americans were killed in benghazi. it's thanksgiving. so i'll say sure. political types may have a different take, though. roland martin joins us now in houston with an awful shirt. >> come on now. texas, baby. >> cade dawson, i'm glad you're dressed professionally. >> there you go. >> football is a contact sport, it's important to wear to discuss this story. >> though lion may win. they didn't to do so well against jacksonville, buddy. >> we w

to a range of possible tax rates. now senate is lindsay gramm, john mccain, bob barker along with house majority leader eric cantor and congressman peter king are rebuking the norquist anti-tax pledge, a new gang of six saying in recent days they would break that pledge to look for new ways to generate revenue republican congressman peter king said bluntly, he is not ruling anything out. >> i agree entirely. a pledge to sign 20 years ago, 18 years ago. i think everything should be on the table. lou: two of the senator's not only reversing themselves on raising taxes but also rethinking their opposition to a susan rice secretary of state apartment. senators gramm and mccain both revising their political positions in a bit -- at a breathtaking pace. joining a summer we are calling the republican reset, the fiscal cliff, of course, and the coup in egypt, the president seemingly in search of a campaign. after a long holiday weekend, does anyone remember been gauzy? to find out, we are joined by of and the daily column founder and editor cockies contributor. thank you. let's start with repub
capitol hill. she will meet with john mccain lindsay gram and kelly eye ott to answer questions about the deadly attack in benghazi. kelly wright has more this morning. >> good morning to you. it appears to be the frounter for being possibly nominated as the new secretary of state. if she is nominated she will need to be confirmed by lawmakers. she will face some today who were not impressed at all with her handle eing of benghazi. susan rice will face her toughest critic after comments she said five days after the attacks on the benghazi consulate. >> what happened initially it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> that explanation byam ambassador rice continues to dog her. republicans on capitol hill john mccain telling fox news bill o'reilly rice failed to act. >> don't we all have a responsibility before we go out and talk to the american people and all five sunday morning shows for verifying those facts are true? there was class fighted information which she has access to which clearly contradicted that. she also by the
in washington, d.c.. senators grahm, mccain sitting there being -- not summoned, too strong a word, but urgently requested to meet with ambassador rice and to what end when we have the responses we've just shown you from three senators saying they have more questions now than going in? >> well, this meeting was obviously a disaster. if it was intended to bring them closer together, to facilitate her nomination for secretary of state, it was a real failure. when you have senators coming out unmistakenbly things are worse now than before the meeting, that's not a good sign. what obama does for the nomination, i don't kkow, but, clearly, what we have is an administration who can't get the story straight. i think as long as that's out there, this is going to be a very troubled period for susan rice and her perspective nomination. lou: the idea is that any president as a matter of tradition has the right to his choice to fill whatever office is at issue. in this case, the secretary of state. this kind of dissension and contradiction and contest between the two parties over ambassador rice really crea
if obama goes forward and decides to nominate rice. >> there is a john mccain and lindsay graham, they have threatened to block her possible nomination. mccain called her comments not very bright. as result he and others are accused of being racist. is questioning her qualifications specifically following her benghazi statements, do you think that is racist? >> democrats have been certainly suggesting that. of course republicans say that is ridiculous. you look at graham and mccain who have been constant critics of the obama administration but you look at center, susan collins who has strongly supported rice in her lowell as u.n. ambassador praised her at her initial confirmation hearing. collins is saying that rice has to answer the question or she won't vote for her. that is major problem for the administration. i think it's a good move by rice she is trying to dial it down. she is willing to meet mccain. the temperature has to come down a little bit in order for her to possibly be nominated. if at this level it will be tough. >> heather: should she still be nominated? >> i think it will

critics on capitol hill face to face. meeting with senator graham and john mccain and our own kelley wright live with more. kelley, this is an amazing development. it is my understanding that she requested the development. >> she did. they talked about since they were did that they were honored to meet with her. susan rice is the front runner for being nominated as the new secretary of state . that could be the reason why. if so she would need to be confirmed by lawmakers. republicans are outraged over the comments rice made in the u.s. consulate in benghazi. that could be problematic. >> initially it was a spontanous reaction to what transspired in carey as a consequence of the video. >> that explanation continues to dodge rice. senator mccain said rice failed to get the facts straight. >> don't we all have a responsibility before we go out and talk to the american people and all five sunday morning shows for verifying that the facts were true. there is classified information that she had access to that contradicted that. and said al-qaida was decimated along with bin laden being ki

john mccain softening his attacks on susan rice after vowing to block the potential nomination as secretary of state. republicans claim ambassador rice deliberately misled the country in the aftermath of the september 11th attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. but rice says it's not her fault. it's the intel community's fault. she just read their talking points. although john mccain threatened a senate filibuster earlier this month, he now is open to meeting directly with ambassador rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind about it? >> sure. she can give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took, and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> the white house says no decisions have been made as far as cabinet selections for the president's second term. softening. >> that was heartwarming. now, you actually wrote about
such as john mccain. >> i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have and i always will. um, i do think that some of the statements he's made about me have been unfounded, but i rook forward to having the -- i look forward to having the opportunity to discuss all of this with him. >> reporter: director of national intelligence james clapper is wanted to return to capitol hill to explain why he told them he did not change the talking points. clapper's spokeman, sean turner, says it was clapper's own agency. >> reporter: jennifer griffin, thank you. rick: talk more about this with susan, chief congressional correspondent for the washington with examiner. susan, happy thanksgiving, good to see you. >> thanks, you too. rick: what'd you think of susan rice's comments? >> clearly, she's setting up the opportunity for becoming the next secretary of state. it is looking more likely, like the president at least wants to nominate her. and for him it will depend on how easily he can get her through the senate without dragging out this whole debate over benghazi. i
misleading information on the deaths of four americans in libya. >> i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have and i always will. i do think that some of the statement he made about me have been unfounded but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. my doctor told me calcium is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release. rick: mexico's president wants the united states out of mexico. officially mexico's name is the united mexican state it was named that to imitate its neighbor to the north. mexico's president is introducing a constitutional reform to change the name to just mexico. the reform must be approved by both house of the mexican congress and the country's state legislatures. heather: deadly rocket attacks on both sides of israel's border with gaza ending, but there is a suspicion the conflict was just a test of their strength. general jack keane is the
as the holiday is again under attack this year. first the lead story, three republican senators, mccain from arizona, graham from south carolina, and ayotte from new hampshire, met with u.n. ambassador susan rice today. remember ambassador rice misled the world how christopher stevens was murdered in benghazi on 9-11. the senators wanted to hear her explanation because she might be nominated as secretary of state. the meeting did not go well because the issue of initially ignoring the terrorist involvement was not explained by dr. rice. >> as i understand it, the explanation is that that was being withheld, the al-qaeda involvement was -- that point of the talking points was being withheld for classified reasons, but i also explored didn't you question that because that left, if you were to omit that portion, it leaves a very different impression to the american people and frankly, i didn't get a satisfactory answer to that. >> bill: joining us from washington to react, fox news analyst charles krauthammer. so bigger mess now than it's ever been. here is my assessment based on what happened
but watch these comments by senator graham, senator mccain. they look to be wanting more accountability than anything else. >> you know, tough hearing perhaps but ed, you may have written what john heilemann writes. he says, as a rule, your columnist avoids predictions but in the spirit of holiday inn dull generals, lee make an exception here. not only will obama appoint rice to succeed clinton, but she will be confirmed. what do you think? do you agree? >> well, he's a columnist and i'm a reporter. i don't do predictions either way. lee say this. if you look at the senate, democrats have 55 votes. you need 60 votes to proceed. you need to five republicans willing to debate her confirmation and may inevitably vote against it. they have done this a few time where they proceed to a bill, they avoid a filibuster and then vote against it. in this case can all they need to do is find enough republicans that say, look, the president has enough to confirm whoever they want and i'll inevitably vote no. it could happen. the fact that mccain has now backed off a little bit and said i'm willing to meet
the al-qaeda stuff. i'm not buying it. none of this adds up. mccain isn't buying it. are you buying it? >> i'm not buying it because the chairman of the house intelligence committee said a week ago in classified testify that same clapper said that they had no idea who changed the talking points and now a week later he is saying did he? that's kind of strange. >> there is a lot of lying going on here. >> i mean, i've seen am amnesiay in my clinical days and that one is pretty quick. >> alisyn: he's not saying -- his office is saying. it could be another case of who in the office did it. another game of clue. >> steve: some in washington on the rye feel he's just the latest fall guy for the white house. >> alisyn: we will keep you posted on all that throughout the show. let's get to your headlines. we have breaking details in search for a serial killer. police in new york city are interrogating a man in connection to this case. the man is apparently a salesman who peddles clothing from a duffel bag. he was caught carrying the bag near the scene of the latest crime. sources say a gun was
was furious that the democrats were pushing back. it was senator john mccain who were furious that the democrats were pushing back on condoleezza rice to be secretary of state. she was wrong on weapons of mass destruction. how is this different? >> the difference is the scrutiny provided by our free press in this country. condoleezza rice was exposed to withering criticism by the press. i don't see that happening now. maybe i've missed something in the talking points, but i don't see that happening. >> so, let me -- >> the ambassador of the united nations should not have been the person on the sunday shows. >> so you're confusing me there for a moment. when you say the scrutiny on the press -- are you saying five days after comments of weapons of mass destruction, you feel like the media was picking apart condoleezza rice? i don't think that's true, sir. most people say that's not the case. it took a long time. i'm talking about three years before she was up for secretary of state. if you're blaming the press, how does it go back to susan rice? >> different timelines. >> how d
to meet with a number of member of congress. following the meeting, senator lindsay graham and john mccain spoke to others. their comments to reporters are about 10 minutes. >> we had a very candid discussion with ms. rice and the acting director c.i.a., we are troubled by some of the answers we have gotten. there was evidence leading up to the attack on the consulate and the tragic deaths of brave americans and ambassador rice was warned sufficiently. it is clear that the information given to the american people was incorrect when she said it was a spontaneous demonstration that triggered it. it was not. there were many indications that that was not the case, including statements from libyans and other americans. bottom line i'm more concerned than i was before that the explanation about how four americans tide does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was wrong. in realtime it was disconnected from reality. anybody looking at the threats, it would jump out at you that this was an al qaeda storm in the making. i'm disappointed in our intelligence community. i
